Description

"...the most intriguing and complex of the whites in this range. Sweet floral notes, citrus and orchard fruits are nicely pushed forward, and yet it is the wine's poise and overall sense of harmony that stand out most." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"...a more serious wine. Buttered citrus, peach, and apple blossom notes as well as more minerality and toasted notes with air all flow to a richly textured, medium-bodied, vibrant white that has a great mix of freshness and richness." ~ Jeb Dunnuck 

A beautiful straw color in the glass, this blend will emit tropical aromas of honeysuckle, grilled pineapple, lemon zest, honey and vanilla, followed up by a hint of nutmeg. Inspiration is bright with fresh acidity and light toasty oak notes, but you will also enjoy refreshing flavors of yellow peach, apricot, citrus, honey and vanilla. If you are feeling adventurous, pair this white Rhône blend with Indian, Asian or vegetarian foods or stick to more traditional pairings such as roasted duck, steamed lobster or pork chops.
